Crusader Comments – January 3-7

Hello fellow Crusaders!  

Congratulations on a successful 1st semester of the school year. We are excited to have each child and their family as a part of our ECS family. On January 24, we will start re-enrollment for the next school year, and, on February 7, open enrollment for the community. (More information coming after the first of the year.) All of us wish each of you a Merry Christmas and a Happy New year. Christmas is a special time of year and we hope that each of you will take the time to stop and think about the birth of Jesus Christ, with the understanding that He alone is the hope and salvation for all the world.  Merry Christmas and a Happy New Year.

Go Crusaders!

Have a great weekend, and make sure you are plugged into a local church body (Hebrews 10:24-25). If you do not have a local church that you currently attend, we invite you to visit us at Emmanuel Baptist Church at 9:15 for Sunday School and at 10:30 for worship

ECS PURPOSE (p. 6 in the handbook) – The purpose of Christian education is to instill biblical values and prepare students to fulfill God’s purpose for their life both vocationally and personally. ECS strives to educate our students with the soft skills necessary for business success and the daily skills for life; including the arts of communicating, living, solving, investigating, developing talents, and using leisure time in accordance with Biblical principles. At ECS, we follow the motto of “Teaching the Mind, Training the Heart.”

Crusader Comments are delivered electronically through email usually on Thursday afternoons and deal with important information and upcoming events for the next week of school. You will receive a “Remind text” to remind you to review it as you are making your plans for the upcoming week.
